of revenue increases fine. but obama is offering an awesome deal. let's take it, it's over. they're sending their messages out to the republican senators and congress saying it's time to make a deal. this deal still kicks ass for us. we'll cut the living hell out of what we call entitlements, social security and medicare and medicaid. lloyd blankfein listen to what he said about so-called indictmentment. >> you'll have to lower people's expectations, the entitlements and what people think they're going to get because it's not going--they're not going to get it. >> cenk: you're not going to get it. i'm going to get it. that's lloyd blankfein. this is the guy whose company took $10 billion in federal bailout and an extra $14 billion through back door bailouts of aig. in the last quarter--that's just a quarter of the year they made $8.4 billion. how much of that did the u.s. taxpayer get for bailing their ass out? none of it. we got the initial $10 billion mac. we did not get the back door bailout back. we did not get a piece of that company. finally look at his salary were last year. it will

a good day of massaging the rhetoric r or we don't take the time to debunk it, but if the obama middle class cuts go through, rich people will get the largest cuts, still. >> we saw the obama victory numbers in this election. but i think he's had a bigger victory than what those numbers indicate and that's in this cnn poll that comes up and it shows today how effective the president's leadership has been on this tax issue because the country agrees with him and more people agree with him than voted for him on this particular issue. it's overwhelmingly in favor of the president's position on this and the republicans are reading that poll and their future is in that poll. >> and the republican party for too long has been driven by their primary electorate. they've been afraid of grover norquist and the tea party coming after them in primaries, but the more we see republicans coming out, reaching across the aisle, there are safety in numbers. so, it looks like there is going to be a genuine move to the center. >> here's what glover is hoping for, that we go off the cliff. then you go off

and so does president obama. entitlements are pushing the country toward financial ruin. here is what the president said in 2010. >> the major driver of the long-term liabilities is medicare, medicaid and healthcare spending. nothing comes close. social security we could probably fix the same way tip o'neil and ronald reagan sat down together and we could figure something out. that is manageable. medicare and medicaid, massive problems down the road. that's where, that is what our children have to worry about. >> dana: here we are, two years later and still no plan. on the left in congress refusing to deal with that simple reality. vermont senator bernie sanders caucuses with the democrats. take a listen. >> i get nervous when i hear the president and others continue to talk about quote/unquote, entitlement reform. which is just another cut for medicaid and medicare and social security. >> eric: brian, start with you, today. >> dana: you look surprised. >> brian: i am. yet honored. >> dana: do you think they are closer to a deal? after thanksgiving people get back to work. >> brian: i

. >> well, i think that president obama definitely has the upper hand in the situation. you have people coming out and saying we don't have on a this anti-tax pledge with grover norquist, a senior republicans, people like bill kristol. you have 12 new house members coming in who refused to sign the pledge. so you start seeing that and it gives the president much stronger leverage to get what he wants. and i think that if the republicans don't come around on and we end up going off the cliff there will get blamed for it. gerri: what do you say? >> i say let's take a look and what happened in november. our government gave the people of america gave the government to the status quo. we are back to where we started in september. the president has a huge do over, and it is his obligation to leave history this. republicans have said we are willing to talk about revenue, but democrats have to be serious on spending. so this idea that anyone has the upper hand is exactly why a deal is not been done. the deal as on the teeseven deal is only as good as it is for both parties. the agreement is hon

that they used to get president obama reelected to get a fiscal deal done, the white house is focussed on the middle class, they call senators, and house machines and tell them, -- house numbers, telling them, uncertainty is killing me but they fail to mention that tax hike with fiscal cliff, president obamaments tax hikes on those making more than $2 theft thousand a year, that will affect their middle class that their job creat creators the nor be able to pay them. neil: the train has left that spending station. i should say that taxes will go up. leaving that aside. how do you make the argument that a deal by the end of the year, even if it is bad, is better than no deal, if ratings agents pounce on a crafty deal, let's say waded toward tax hikes not addressinggspending cuts, wouldn't credit agency seize on that and downgrade us just the same? >> absolutely. this is what we saw with debt ceiling last summer, we saw our credit rating go down. and if you want to talk about that, white house tapped tim geithner today, treasury secretary to head the fiscal talks, he is the one that said

to be off the table. those democrats do not include president obama who has made it clear he's open to a discussion about medicare and medicaid. and you usually would think there's not enough time to do serious entitlement reform. but the fact is, we've been talking about this set of issues for a year and more, lots of blueprints out there, including simpson/bowles. i think it is possible that will be part of a deal that is reached before the end of the year. >> this morning, dick durbin didn't really want to get into specifics. you aren't hearing a lot of numbers from a lot of people, but did say he was encouraged. take a listen. >> if i sound bland and general at this point, it's exactly to the point he made. when the doors close and we sit down with revenue on one side, entitlements on the other, then we get specific and come up with a bipartisan plan. >> ryan, to susan's point of who is the president talking to, is this something to be hashed out between president obama and john boehner. >> i guess so. because dick durbin himself has been confusing in what he's been saying publi
